  • The JKS editors and editorial board welcome submissions year-round for publication. The JKS is published biannually in the spring and fall.

    Thematic issues are confirmed two years in advance. Those who have a publication track record and interest in guest editing a thematic issue may send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and a sample call for papers or a list of potential conference papers to our editorial office.

    Article manuscripts, including notes and bibliography, should be at least 7,000 words and no more than 10,000 words. Please submit a Microsoft Word (not a PDF) copy of the manuscript via email. Notes should be at the end of the text. For endnote style and documentation format, consult the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th ed. (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2010).

    The JKS uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To submit an article for review, go to the journal's online peer-review submission portal at www.edmgr.com/jks.

    To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. To help with this preparation, please ensure the following when submitting to the Journal of Korean Studies:

    Romanization of Korean words and names must follow the McCune-Reischauer system. Materials that have been accepted for publication or are being considered for publication elsewhere should not be submitted to the JKS.

    The blinded manuscript should be free of names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript. There are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review. To assist with this process, the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

           a. Use the third person to refer to work the authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007].”
          b. Cite papers published by the author in the text as follows: "[Anonymous, 2007]."
          c. For blinding in the reference list: "[Anonymous 2007]. Details omitted for double-blind reviewing."
          d. Remove references to funding sources.
          e. Do not include acknowledgments.
          f. Name your files with care and ensure document properties are also anonymized.

  • Description

    The Journal of Korean Studies is the preeminent journal in its field, publishing high-quality articles in all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences on a broad range of Korea-related topics, both historical and contemporary. Korean studies is a dynamic field, with student enrollments and tenure-track positions growing throughout North America and abroad. At the same time, the Korean peninsula’s increasing importance in the world has sparked interest in Korea well beyond those whose academic work focuses on the region. Recent topics include the history of anthropology of Korea; seventeenth century Korean love stories; the Chinese diaspora in North Korea; student activism in colonial Korea in the 1940s; and GLBTQ life in contemporary South Korea. Contributors include scholars conducting transnational work on the Asia-Pacific as well as on relevant topics throughout the global Korean diaspora. The Journal of Korean Studies is based at the Center for Korean Research at Columbia University.
